So in other words, the Brewers are gambling that a 3B platoon of Brockstar/Jerkstore will be the key to their 2020 season.

This is wonderful.


Last year our 3B posted a 73wRC+ & 0.1 WAR.

ZIPS projects Brock for a 95 OPS+ & Jedd for a 98 OPS+ so they shouldn't have much problem topping last year's results.

That's pretty negative. They are "gambling" that the 26 men they put on the field for the opening day roster, plus the depth they have in the minors will keep them in the race until they decide at the trade deadline if they should invest more capital for a mid-season upgrade somewhere.

But yes, the third base platoon is part of the overall plan. I'd love to have the resources to buy a star at every position, but I think that the platoon mixes they've brought together should give us a fairly solid line-up top-to-bottom whether we're facing a lefty or a righty.

I think at worst, they will have average production offensively at every position on the field.

The thing is... if I can churn out a lot of those average production guys or even above-average production players, it becomes easier to keep the genuine superstars.

An little unconventional look at a possible lineup

vs RHP
Cain - CF
Holt - 3B
Yelich -LF
Hiura - 2B
Narvaez - C
Garcia - RF
Smoak - 1B
Sogard - SS

vs LHP
Cain - CF
Braun -1B
Yelich - LF
Hiura - 2B
Garcia - RF
Gyorko - 3B
Pina - C
Arcia - SS

I think Braun (35%) and Holt (34.5%) ability to put the ball in play on a regular basis up the middle and solid OBP make for great 2-hitters. Yelich/Hiura have more opportunities to drive in runs in the 3/4 spot.

With the DH in the NL being part of the owners' 2020 proposal, there will be an opportunity for Yelich, Cain, Garcia, and Braun to all be in the lineup.

Stearns does it again!
